What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a dermal injectable that mimics the natural hyaluronic acid found in the skin. The solution binds to skin and helps maintain higher levels of moisture. It also provides stability and structure underneath the surface of the skin. This decreases the appearance of wrinkles and boosts the skin’s natural luster.
The Restylane® line of dermal fillers includes a variety of clear gels containing hyaluronic acid. Each Restylane® product is designed to mimic the hyaluronic acid produced by the body while treating specific imperfections and targeting different areas in the skin.
Benefits of Restylane®
There are many benefits of Restylane® injections. The treatment is safe and simple, taking only 15 to 60 minutes. There is no downtime when the injections are performed on its own. It contains no ingredients harvested from animals and is all-natural, which has a low risk of allergic reactions. Over time, the body absorbs the excess hyaluronic acid, and the ingredients are absolutely compatible with the body.
The most important benefit is that the results last up to 6 to 12 months depending on the type of filler used and the location placed.

What Is a Restylane® Procedure?
You will have a consultation with Dr. Flannagan to determine the best course of action for your desired results. The treatment is very easy and fast. Some patients request a numbing agent to ensure complete comfort during the treatment, but this may not be needed for everyone. Restylane® gel is injected underneath the skin using a fine-gauge needle. Dr. Flannagan will use specific amounts and locations to ensure a natural appearance. You will notice immediate results with continued improvement over several weeks. Results last typically up to one year, with many patients scheduling follow-up treatments to maintain increased hydration in the skin.
How Long Is the Recovery After a Restylane® Procedure?
As an in-office procedure, there is relatively no downtime afterwards. Most patients can resume their regular schedule the same day. Dr. Flannagan may recommend that you avoid heavy exertion or strenuous exercise for 24 hours to allow the solution time to bond and settle.
How Much Does a Restylane® Procedure Cost?
The cost for your procedure will vary depending on the number of injections and the extent of the treatment. Some patients may need follow-up treatments more frequently than others. This will also impact the cost for your treatment. In most cases, plastic surgery treatments are not covered by insurance.
